Some of the studies have obtained statistical information about the fire is as follows
1,389,500 fires were reported in the U.S. during 2011. 3,005 civilian fire deaths, 17,500 civilian fire injuries and $11.7 billion in property damage 61 firefighter deaths during fires.(Source: www.nfpa.org)
In the light of all these data, making more secure and fire-resistant building materials is inevitable. At his point there are some various fire-resistant mechanisms.
In order to consider market requirements HDOPLAT developed flame retardant compounds which have different fire-resistant combustion mechanism.
• Although the halogen elements which take part Group 7A in periodic table are highly effective against the fire, they generate HCl, HBr, etc dangerous gases during combustion reactions can cause serious damages to human health when inhaled. So the usages of halogenated based flame retardant systems have been decreases in last decades.
• HDOPLAST have developed low smoke and flame retardant, HFFR compounds which have no significant hazardous effects for different applications.
